    Hello everyone, I'm new to the world of Caddie, and LOVE IT!!

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the world of Caddie, and LOVE IT!!

    I'm a huge car guy. Just bought a 2012 Black Diamond CTS-V and I LOVE IT!!! I'm a former Audi guy with a 2006 B7 S4 (4.2 L NA V8). Also, I have a habit of never leaving well enough. I have a 2006 modded Mitsubishi Evo IX MR with 550 whp on mustang dyno. Just got the CTS-V and can't wait to start with some mods. Already looking Air raid CAI, Pulley, Exhaust and tune. Gotta say that it seems like the sky is the limit with car. I'm very excited!! I've previously found that the internet forum support for the Evo was absolutely awesome. I'm hoping to find the same here. Cheers!!!

    BTW, Audi has nothing on Cadillac!!!!

    Sam

    Welcome Sam! Drive the 'V' a while, get it broken in correctly and get settled with what it has now. Then either you will decide that it may not need the modifications or you will note what difference the mods made to a greater extent. The car is powerful as it is..... but I'm also interested in what each mod will do......as you are. And....there are some folks here who can give you great advice toward your mods.

    Re: Hello everyone, I'm new to the world of Caddie, and LOVE IT!!

    Agreed! The car is a monster in stock form. Unfortunately, I'm brain damaged in that I suffer from the belief that you can never have enough horsepower. Heck, I modded a 2.0L 4 cylinder Mitsubishi Evo to put out 550 whp and 475 lb ft on a mustang dyno. The car is awd and gutted out to weigh only 3100 lbs. Fast as a bat out of hell. What I see with the V is the best of both worlds. It's a beast in a tuxedo. My job dictated that I needed to "grow up", but I can already see the power potential is limitless with this car. Thanks for the welcomes. It's good to be aboard!!!

    Welcome to the forum, Spartan! You probably already know this, but my only advice about mods with this car is do your research and find out how far you want to take it? Just like any other car, there are many options. Save yourself some $$ by doing it once and doing it right (..but we know that's not gonna happen because it never ends)! Good luck..it's a kickass ride!

    I noticed you cautioned Sam to break it incorrectly. My Coupe should arrive and perhaps a month. Do you have any advice with regard to break in? I assume the manufacturer defines how to break it .

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Well most of the gang around here are old enough to know better, but still too young to care. Thusly, you will find more than enough good information to take your new V wherever it is you want ot take it and plenty of people willing to share said info. Welcome to the family.
